This is a fun purple nail art design that looks good on both short and long nails. It involves mixing a drop of purple polish and white polish in a bowl of water, stirring the two polishes together and then dipping your nails and getting the mixed polish on your tips. After this, all you have to do is clean up the edges with acetone and a Q-tip and seal the polish with a top coat. This design can be created at home too in case you’re feeling creative this weekend.
For a more galactic effect, try a metallic and shimmer-infused purple nail polish like this one. The Manish Malhotra Nail Lacquer in Velvet Stardust is a gel finish nail enamel that delivers a high shine effect. The shade Velvet Stardust is a royal purple shade that looks dazzling on the nails.
For a more elegant manicure design, try this beautiful purple nail art look. It features nude nail polish on the index and ring finger while the other three fingernails have dark purple polish. The ring finger has dark purple polish placed in an abstract design at the tip and on the side next to the cuticle. The index finger has the purple polish placed in the place of the white polish in a classic French manicure. This purple nail art design is created on almond-shaped nails, but you can create it on short nails as well.
Add a touch of vibrancy to your fingertips with this poppin’ purple nail polish. The MyGlamm LIT Nail Enamel in Bold Digger is a chip-resistant nail enamel with an ultra-glossy finish. The shade Bold Digger is a neon lilac shade that will look beautiful alongside nude nail polishes as shown in the above purple nail art design.
If you want to do purple nail art at home, it’s possible with a basic nail kit and some skills. Cut and shape your nails with a nail cutter and nail file. Massage your cuticles with oil and apply a base coat on your nails. Apply a coat of purple nail polish and allow it to dry before you apply a second coat for more colour payoff. You can use toothpicks, tape, paintbrushes, or whatever you think can work to create unique nail art according to your liking. Just make sure to seal the design with a final brush of clear top coat over all your nails.
